Sa Wakas, Sugarfree's well-loved debut album from 2003, turns 15 this year. Former front man Ebe Dancel, who credits the record as "the album that changed his life forever", played a special Sugarfree set for the album's 15th birthday.
Last night (12/16), Dancel performed to a sold-out crowd of over 500, with people hanging around outside 12 Monkeys Music Hall & Pub, to be able to listen to and sing along to the music that helped them through their pain and heartbreak. Tables were booked immediately after Dancel's show announcement, prompting the venue to ensure patrons that the event will be open to walk-ins. The bouncers shared with Bandwagon that there were a number of fans who queued up as early as 3 PM (doors opened at 7 PM) to make sure they were able to get a good spot inside.
The singer-songwriter planned to play an 18-song set, but ended up performing more songs, ending the night with a rendition of 'Burnout'. Earlier this morning (12/17), Dancel announced on twitter that there will be a second (and final) show for the Sa Wakas anniversary.
Grateful. Details of the second and final leg of the #SaWakas anniversary show will be announced soon. Mahal ko kayo.— Ebe Dancel (@ebedancel) January 17, 2018
